Our main activity is that of poultry slaughterhouse, cutting plant, meat product processing plant, marketing of meat products and freezing facilities.
We are aware that we are living in an economic and industrial era which is in continuous evolution, so we constantly reinvest to renew and improve our production and distribution system in order to remain among the leading companies in the poultry sector. Proof of this is the application of the requirements of the international food safety standard IFS Food, in the production processes.
We have an integrated production system, i.e. we supply our own feed and veterinary control to all our fattening, breeding, rearing and hatchery farms.
Sustainable production committed to the environment.
Our feed factory Avícola Levantina, is strategically located near the port of Cartagena, which allows us to control our raw materials from the start. Our feed production and transport is dedicated exclusively to the supply of feed to all our farms, this allows us to have absolute control of all our production and is a guarantee of food safety. As a result of this, we can certify our feed production process as antibiotic-free feed.
We are committed to animal welfare and proof of this is that we have the “IRTA Approved Certification in Animal Welfare Based on Welfare Quality” in all our own farms, integrated farms and in the slaughterhouse. Our farms are equipped with the latest technology. We have our own fleet of animal transport vehicles, a large waiting area for live animals and our CO2 gas stunning system, which are all state-of-the-art from a technological point of view. Thanks to this, we protect, care for and treat our poultry with the utmost respect.
Committed to the environment, we are ISO 14001:2015 certified.
